maybe because we live in a tropical place, maybe because we feel this music brings sunshine with us wherever we go, but tropicalia has made its way into our music rotation and it is here to stay. so open the windows, turn on the fans, and mix yourself a drink.
here is a track from Os Mutantes
another good mix
if you would like to read further about the Tropicalia movement here is a piece from Hype Hype Hooray is a biweekly “critique” of the music scene and the blogosphere that feeds it, told through the lens of Jamie Hale, a journalist who likes music about as much as he likes scotch and a firm leather chair. Please enjoy with a grain of salt.
